Dunkin' Donuts has signed agreements with three of its existing Latin American partners to expand the brand further in the region. The agreements call for more than 125 new Dunkin' restaurants to be developed over the next 10 years by the chain's local partners Fagase S.A. in Chile, Donucol Ltd. in Colombia and Nutra S.A. in Peru.
Per the deal, 38 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants will open in Chile, 70 in Colombia and 25 in Peru. All of the new restaurants will feature coffee beverages, donuts, and breakfast bakery sandwiches. They also will feature menu items inspired by local flavors, such as Manjar and Arequipe (dulce de leche) donuts in all three countries and the Iced Chicha Fruit Coolatta in Peru, which is made with Peruvian purple corn.
"We already have great traction for our brand in Chile, Colombia and Peru as a result of our relationships with these three experienced, successful in-country partners and believe Dunkin' Donuts has an even brighter future in Latin America as a result of these expansion plans," Giorgio Minardi, president of Dunkin' Brands International, said in a press release.
Dunkin' Donuts currently has more than 300 restaurants across Latin America, including more than 200 locations in Chile, Colombia and Peru, as well as locations in Ecuador, Honduras and Panama.
